developments in the attacks on u.s. facilities in both cairo, egypt. and benghazi, libya. u.s. sources now tell cnn the attack in benghazi was actually planned in advance and the perpetrators used a protest outside the u.s. consulate in benghazi there simply as a diversion. four americans died including the united states ambassador to libya chris stevens. our foreign affairs correspondent, jill dougherty, has been working her sources to get a better idea on exactly what happened. our senior international correspondent nic robertson is monitoring the search for who's responsible. and our pentagon correspondent chris lawrence is keeping tabs on the u.s. military's response to what's going on as well. let's go to jill first. she's watching what's going on. jill, what's the latest over at the state department beyond the heartbreak of a top u.s. diplomat, three others killed? >> right, wolf. just in a few minutes we're expecting an update, a briefing on background by senior officials here at the state department. but for now this is what we know based on the conversations and what we are hearing fro

there was a report that intelligence suggested an attack in benghazi saying that report was absolutely untrue. meanwhile, while authorities say that the attack in benghazi was carefully planned and coordinated, it is still unclear whether it was in response to the antiislam film or something timed to coincide with the 11th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, or frankly, it could have been both. we just heard secretary of state, hillary clinton speak directly to the people of the region, saying that folks in libya, egypt, and yemen, did not trade the tyranny of a dictator for the tyranny of a mob. the ceremony had a message to americans. that is that the four people who came home today for their final time were all american heroes, who gave their likes for their country. the president, the white house and the state department have been giving out a couple of messages the past two days. the first is that u.s. government had absolutely nothing to do with this anti-islam film although it was produced in this country. that's a tough message to get across to the arab spring where people are used to di

.s. consulate in benghazi. let's go live to our pentagon correspondent chris lawrence getting new details on what's going on. chris, what are you learning? >> yeah, wolf, just in the past few hours libya's own prime minister told cnn's own christiane amonopore have arrested one man. he is currently being interrogated. and libyan authorities say they have several others under surveillance and more arrests may be on the way. meantime, u.s. intelligence officials say they are digging deeper and getting more information about who may have been behind this attack. at this point they say it does not appear to be a core al qaeda group, wolf. >> what does that mean? a core al chi da affiliate groups. what does that mean, a core al qaeda group? >> they think it's very possible that this could have been an al qaeda-inspired group. some group that is not directly affiliated with the hierarchy of al qaeda but does support the aims and ideals of al qaeda. >> and what about the u.s. warships, chris, that are heading toward libya right now? where are they? and are those extra u.s. marines already on the
's emerging as one of the key questions along with why there wasn't more security in benghazi. >> bret: ed henry traveling with the president in columbus, ohio. thank you. as i said at the top of the show, iowa is a popular place today. we're here. so are the two men running for vice president. the top of the g.o.p. ticket, however, is in california tonight on outreach of group firmly in his opponent's corper. chief political correspondent carl cameron has that story from los angeles. >> emphasizing more details of the five-point economic plan in contrast to what he says is lack from the president, mitt romney promised the 33rd hispanic chamber of commerce convention in los angeles he would end what he called the obama administration hos silty toward small business. >> national unemployment is 8.1%. hispanic unemployment is over 10%. over 2 million more hispanics are living in post officeerty y than when obama took office. >> he told the business group he would reform immigration policy. unlike the president who promised he would make it a priority. >> the president never offered up a bil
yo from the last minutes of chris stevens life. arwa is live for us in benghazi. i know we've had a chance to view this video. tell us about the ambassador's last moments and what we're going to see in this video. >> reporter: well, what this video shows, erin is a group of men in a fairly chaotic scene crawling out of a window that they had just broken into, trying to reach this part of the compound. the doors, the windows all had bars on them. you hear a voice shouting they found a dead body. in the midst of this chaos, you hear someone screaming, he's alive he's alive. and they start chanting, god is great. at this point in time, according to the young man who filmed this, nobody realized this was the ambassador. they knew it was a foreigner, they suspected, perhaps, it was an american, it didn't cross anyone's mind that it was, in fact, the ambassador himself. he says they believe he was still alive, because there was a pulse. a very weak one, and his eyes were moving. in the ten minutes that it took for them to be able to transport him to the hospital, it appears that he died
was there was no significant demonstration going on outside that consulate area in benghazi. so she is making it sound if the extremists who were heavily armed came in and joined a ongoing big demonstration that got whipped into a frenzy and led to this attack. >> right. well, obviously there's still a lot of facts to be learned. we don't know everything yet but there is one group of people who are not at all confused by what happened and those are the people who attacked consulate and killed four americans. they know what they planned and what they did. even worse than that, as tragic as this is, is the signal that it is sending to al qaeda and terrorists and extremists all around the region, which is, that we did not have adequate security for our ambassador to libya. we didn't have adequate security for our embassy in cairo on september the 11th. and that official americans and private americans are vulnerable. tunisia is a good example. when they couldn't really take over the embassy they storm ad school across the street. they couldn't get the hard target. so they went after a soft target. i thin
the benghazi demonstration into a violent one. intelligence officials are also reviewing telephone records and computer traffic. libyan law enforcement agencies say some arrests have already been made. >>> this morning, we are also getting a look at the ruins of the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya, where ambassador chris stevens and the three other americans were killed. coming up at 7:15, how a note found in the debris is shedding light on stevens' mission in libya. >>> in overnight news, san francisco police are investigating a homicide. it happened in the bayview district early this morning. police say they responded to a report of shooting just after 1:30 at osceola lane and lasalle avenue. police haven't released details on the victim or suspects. >>> highway 1 in san mateo county is back open this morning after a fatal crash there shut down part of that roadway for several hours. that crash was reported just before 101:30 last night. so far, no word on the cause. >>> today, parents plan to help clean up the damage left from a fire that gutted a menlo park school. an early morning f
to join in this quote, blessed mission. in benghazi, hundreds protesting against the militia blamed for the a tack on the embassy. and to rid them of the those in eastern libya and the collapse of the regime. and a source telling the evidence points to a joint evident by al sharia not tied with al-qaeda, but sympathetic tried to fail establishing a state in eastern libya. and, the detainee is linked to the group in libya considered the most extremely. given the consulate attack is now branded tyrannyism, why the obama administration seems to be leaning to criminal prosecution. >> how could an attack go that long and what kind of response do we have in place for an attack that of could have went from six to ten to 12 hours and the law enforcement model seems to be being used here. i think that's a huge mistake, the fbi agent who briefed us was singularly unimpressive. >> reporter: fox news is first it report on 9-13 two days of the attack there was evidence suggesting insider help and reuters is now reporting that that is the central focus of the fbi investigation. guys, back to you
steefb stevens and three other than americans were killed at the u.s. consulate in benghazi. u.s. officials have not arrested anyone directly linked to the attack. they have focused on members of the militia sympathetic to al qaeda. but the arrests they have made are of people outside that night but not having to do with the attack. arwa damon has been fighting for answers. it's been hard. she is in benghazi, and a few moments ago, i asked her how the investigation is going. >> reporter: it's been incredibly frustrating to try to get a straight answer from the government, because even within the government itself, we're still continuing to hear these conflicting accounts. how many people have actually been arrested? how many of them were associated with the attack? what sort of leads has the government come across? at this point in time, you still have the head of libya's general national congress effectively the country's president, saying that amongst those detained, there were some foreigners that are believed to have links to al qaeda. that this was a preplanned attack carr
dozen bills on the agenda today, including one honoring the diplomats killed in libya, in benghazi last week, and the re-authorization today of the federal emergency management agency. live coverage here on c-span at 2:00 p.m. eastern. host: the chair of the hamilton county, ohio, democratic party, tim. in cincinnati. and the republican party chair, alexander, from hamilton county. and from columbus, ohio, is jim, the political correspondent for wbnf-tv, the cbs affiliate in that city. gentlemen, thank you very much for being with us. jim heath, let me begin with you. hamilton county, ohio, has traditionally been a republican county, 1968 through 2004, a traditional republican county. in 2008 it went democratic. barack obama winning by 29,000 votes. what changed? >> well, a lot of republicans moved out of hamilton county into surrounding counties, steve, but there's one thing for certain in this election like past elections, the southwestern corner of ohio will be pivotal for mitt romney. he's got to get that back. he's got to perform better in hamilton county than john mccain did four
there was no significant or sizable demonstration when the attacks unfolded sometime after 9:35 p.m. in benghazi on 9/11. in simple terms this was not an ongoing demonstration that spiraled out of control. quote, there was no protests and attacks were not spontaneous the intelligence source said. the libyan attack was planned and had nothing to do with the movie. according to fox news's official a u.s. official did not dispute the account and talked about at small demonstration this consulate as how many separated the attack in the even u.s. official could not say adding it part of the investigation. quote, while everything is still under investigation, the available information suggests that the protests in cairo inspired what the attackers decided to do later that night in benghazi. right now this points to a plan that was hatched opportunisticly on that day. while the libyan government as well was senior members of congress briefed on the attack call it terrorism and they say it was premeditated the state department spokeswoman would still not go that far. >> again i'm not going to put labels on t
of this to include benghazi was preplanned. it's not spontaneous. megyn: so you're saying they are feeling more emboldened now, that they don't believe that the american superpower will strike back in the way we once would have? >> exactly. and, of course, our ability to do so isdiminished every time we pull more troops occupant of a place like afghanistan t. out of a place like afghanistan. the sad fact of it is that the mission of the u.s. u.s. marinen this case with the fast units being sent out are to protect diplomatic missions from this kind of assault. well, there's not quite enough marines to go around if that's what we're going to continue to do, cutting the budget. so places like sudan which turned down the introduction of a marine security guard detachment and the enhanced fast unit that was supposed to go out there, what we really ought to be doing is telling sudan no marines, no aid. and this administration isn't about to do that kind of thing because they can't even acknowledge that they failed, they failed in the basic requirements of preparing for the kind of demonstrations that
gunmen staged a military style assault on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya. the u.s. ambassador, christopher stevens and three other americans died in the assault carried out with guns, mortars and grenades. protests erupted in other countries in the middle east, north africa and the pacific rim with the most violent in cairo, egypt. they are blaming america for a film they say insulted the prophet mohammed. joining me is mona. i want to ask you for viewers that have been watching at home seeing the images. is this a tinderbox that is about to get worse. is this a growing movement or is this sort of something that came up by now is largely over? >> first, i would like to start by sending out my condolences to the family and loved ones of the four americans killed in libya and of the other people of various nationalities killed yesterday. at least 14 people were killed. each and every one of those deaths was utterly senseless without any reason or purpose. i think what you are seeing is a kind of i hope a dying cry of a very desperate right wing. we have very sensitive timing in
in the assassination of our ambassador in benghazi is quite significant because it rips a hole in the administration argument that the war on terror is over. it is very much in force as we can see. stuart: last time mitt romney said anything about this was placed appearance when he was responding to the semi apology the embassy of cairo put out. the response to what mitt romney said was from the media that this -- is this now a new opportunity for mitt romney to get into this issue? >> i think it is. this shows that our commander-in-chief not only is weak and indecisive but fundamentally misunderstands what is going on in the middle east and while people are focused on the economy the potential danger to the united states over the next four years is real. stuart: is it right for a challenger in a presidential election to go after the incumbent president on foreign policy six weeks to the election? >> absolutely. if you go back to 1944 and look at republican criticism of franklin roosevelt's handling of the war until then that is real criticism of a critical foreign policy. remember the war in vietna
